Bombing and Memory: Britain and France, 1940-45

Institute of Historical Research Douglas Johnson Memorial Lecture Bombing and Memory: Britain and France, 1940-45 Hosted by the Society for the Study of French History and the Institute of Historical Research, the 2014 Douglas Johnson Memorial Lecture will take place on 15th January 2014 in the Court room at Senate House, London. Professor Andrew Knapp (University of Reading) will present a paper on Bombing and Memory: Britain and France, 1940-45. Between 1940 and 1945, Germany dropped some 75,000 tonnes of bombs – including V1s and V2s – on the UK, causing some 60,595 deaths. Even while it was happening, the Blitz was being woven into Britain’s national identity. It has stayed there ever since as the prime symbol of our finest hour. Less well known is that over the same period, the Allies dropped roughly 518,000 tonnes on France, killing at least 57,000 French civilians, wounding perhaps 75,000 more, and leaving most of France’s towns and cities officially war-damaged, and some...

Rolland, Gandhi and Madeleine Slade: Spiritual Politics, France and the Wider World

Institute of Historical Research Douglas Johnson Memorial Lecture 'Rolland, Gandhi and Madeleine Slade: Spiritual Politics, France and the Wider World' Ruth Harris (Professor of European History and Fellow of the New College, Oxford) Between 6 and 11 December in 1931, a remarkable meeting occurred between Mahatma Gandhi, the French intellectual and international pacifist Romain Rolland, and Madeleine Slade, the daughter of a British admiral. The encounter took place in Switzerland, after Gandhi had left the unsuccessful second Round-Table Conference on India in London. They came together through the good offices of Slade (re-named Mira Behn by Gandhi), who had been given as a 'gift' by Rolland to the Mahatma, and who now lived at the centre of Gandhi's intimate entourage. I will use this meeting to explore how the protagonists sought spiritual and aesthetic solutions to the encroaching global crisis, and to analyse the place of French intellectual culture in a worldwide interwar con...
